The Dropzone Update is coming to Blacklight in August, including a new map and the Sonic Tomahawk!
The Sonic Tomahawk is functionally similar to the Exploding Tomahawk, with one major difference: all the damage comes at once. Each throw deals 290 damage – or 200 damage for a melee swing. There’s no explosion, and so the Tomahawk can be retrieved from any kill.
The best of all possible kills? ‘hawk someone in the face as you’re running up to them, then keep running through and grab the Sonic Tomahawk as you go. Unlike with the limited damage of the Explosive Tomahawk, you’re never going to find yourself bouncing off of Grendel.
The only agent build that can survive a Sonic Tomahawk is a high-Health build with melee protection. Anything less, and one toss of the Tomahawk makes ultrasonic sashimi of your target. The Sonic Tomahawk will be available in early August – get ready for The Dropzone Update!
